Simple Techniques Followed By Experts To Water-Proof The Walls

by Abhinav G. Movie Enthusiast

Walls are always exposed to harsh conditions. Rain, snow and moisture are common elements that can degrade the walls. Exterior walls are more exposed to these elements. The walls may always remain damp and humid during the rainy season. 


If the walls absorb the excess of water, then the basic structure of the house also gets affected. You may need proper water-proofing solutions. You can hire the best waterproofing in Auckland services. Professional waterproofing services will repair the walls for major and minor issues. They will follow basic steps to check the waterproofing issues in and around the property. 


Check for major or minor faults


 You cannot waterproof the walls unless you check with the faults. This is where experts are helpful. They have their standard procedure. They will check the walls for all types of faults. They will inspect the walls for cracks and seepage points.


Even before you get started with applying the waterproofing material, you need to know what damages are there on the walls. If the water pipeline is leaking, then waterproofing walls may not prove much helpful.


Check with the gutters


In many homes, you may have gutter lines running parallel to the walls. The water from the roof is also drained through the gutter system attached to the ground level. If the gutter system is running at the base then the walls absorb water that leaks from the gutter.


So it is important to waterproof the walls and repair the gutter system as well. If you only waterproof the walls it may not be of much help.


Decide the right material


All types of waterproofing materials are not the same; the choice may differ depending on the type of leakage you are facing. If the walls have bigger cracks then they have to be repaired before the waterproofing is applied.


For the ceiling, you may need strong waterproofing material that can withstand extreme heat and cold. For walls, the material has to be applied as a plastering material. In some places, the material can only be used in the form of a patch.


In each case, you need to inspect the walls. This is why you should only hire a professional team. Waterproofing, if done effectively, will prevent leakage for over a year.


Use right additive


The additive is always added to the common plastering powder. This is easy to apply on any surface. But it may not be suitable for most surfaces. You can apply to plaster only if the walls are dry. If the walls are still wet then you may have to think of some other solution.


Professional waterproofing services will always be aware of selecting the right method and techniques. You can hire them to protect the walls and ceiling.
